Abstract

Autoethnography is a method of studying a specific culture through the experiences of a researcher within that culture. Although a relatively new field, autoethnography uses first person observation and experiences to understand societies and cultures. This study provides research on bisexuality in several areas including biology, psychology, sociology and the particulary contexts of religion, family and education. The methods of autoethnography and, specifically, performed personal narrative are discussed as well. The study concludes with a personal narrative performance script and an analysis of the development and performance processes.
